A coin

I’ve been thinking, odd I know, Evan thinking, outrageous! 😉 yes indeed turning to Christ involves true repentance and faith (trust). These however are not to be thought of as two separate things. They are really two sides to the same coin. You find out how despicable, corrupt, and hopeless you are before an allContinue reading “A coin”

The Real problem

I’ve come to a startling realization: I’ve been walking in unbelief.   My constant fears and doubts are not pleasing to God.  Nor are they the show of “maturity” in making sure I am indeed saved (the liar tried that one lol).  I have walked in doubt of the promises of God Himself.   He promised thatContinue reading “The Real problem”

Smoldering wick

Pray for revival

There is being experienced within the Church a strong desire for revival. This is fantastic and God honoring I believe. I hear of prayers for peace, for the Spirit’s guidance and filling. All good things. I am moved to say also, we should pray in repentance within our churches. We ask for revival, for newContinue reading “Pray for revival”

The End afoot

Wake up people! Look around you at the chaos. As you can tell the weather by signs so we can tell the day by signs occurring. The days are evil, the world is in chaos with natural disasters and plagues surfacing. The Lord Jesus Christ returns soon: repent and believe the good news please! AndContinue reading “The End afoot”

Rather offensive

The love and mercy of our, God is beautiful and truly incredible.   With that said, in addition,  coupled with our, Lord’s love is His holiness.  God is ultimately and totally holy, as such He has wrath: righteous indignation toward transgressions, and transgressors. And rightfully so. These two characteristics of the, Godhead in total, are playedContinue reading “Rather offensive”

Rebel with a cause

Let’s be rebels, you and I! Let’s throw off the restraints of society: it’s cultural and religious expectations, customs, opinions and norms. Let’s rebel! Our society is obsessed with rebels: movies, television, music, art, politics, etc. No I’m not talking about worldly rebellion. I’m not telling you to stop vaccinating your kids, to be vegan,Continue reading “Rebel with a cause”

Reality check

It’s common to hear that we have souls. Or spirit within us. The thought is we’re physical beings having an immaterial soul. There’s a problem with this however, it’s a misunderstanding, a confusion of priority. We are eternal spirits inhabiting a material body. Why does that matter, Evan, aren’t you “cutting hairs” here? No IContinue reading “Reality check”

The Big 36

It’s my birthday today, not a particularly remarkable event given the number of human beings on our planet. But, wait, perhaps remarkable because I’m alive…in more ways than one! I started off the year with bang (too soon for suicide jokes?) My life as I knew it ended that day, I survived physically but cameContinue reading “The Big 36”
